Things On Sticks

Things on Sticks By Kay Plunkett-Hogge

“Everyone loves food on sticks, wrapped in bacon or not. Frankly, I think half the fun of planning a party is the chance to create some new combinations and serve some old classics. Here are a few of my current favourite things on sticks” explains hostess with the mostest, Kay Plunkett-Hogge.

“They are fairly free-form – each idea is for one stick – just make as many as you need”
